Iffy Princess

The Amarna PrincessA father and son have been charged in connection with the sale of an iffy Egyptian statue - The Amarna Princess - to Bolton Council for £440,000 (about $1m) in 2003. The twits of Bolton Council thought they were buying a 3,300-year-old antiquity! Chuckle, chuckle. One glance should tell you this is a third-rate, post-Rodin piece of frippery. So what happened to "Let the buyer beware"? And why the hell did Bolton councillors waste ratepayers' money on an Egyptian antiquity, real or fake?
